Your wrong gg, the public has NO RIGHT to know someones illness issues. While like you I might like to know, it certainly is NOT a Right. :rolleyes:

Simplified, if you're known and recognized by people that you don't know, you're famous. Would you open your private life to them?

Do I have a choice?  The more famous you are the less control you have over that.

Sorry to say there is a empty stool in Margaritaville. Play the I-95 song on the juke box and have a brew.

People don't understand the I-95 song (one of my favs).

You People, like Southern Folk shouldn't listen to it.   

It's about about being a Northerner, and driving down South to Florida to enjoy a nice winter vacation - and dealing with hayseed drivers.   

Basically, it's about Southern drivers who can't drive (unlike us North Easterners), and the trauma and annoyance about having to deal with rednecks (esp pickup trucks + semis) on the way to Ormond Beach or Daytona.

It's also about dealing with the unavailability of good Italian food too.  One can only stomach so many grits and pee can pies.

Also, what up with the no electric charging stations ?  It's 2023 not 1978!  You know how hard it is to drive a Prius in the South ?

We have no 'right' to know famous peoples private stuff.

Being a nuisance on the road is not geographically based. You find people all over the world who got their license out of a box of Cracker-Jacks.

I don't know if Jimmy went out singing or what song it would have been but I like Richard Belzer's last words.
Far too many, if not most, people on this Board post just to say something opposed to posting when they have something to say.

When you choose to be famous you forfeit all rights to privacy, sorry.

Certainly a shame! A real musician and storyteller. Sucks to lose such an American Icon. The guy built a legacy on Margaritaville. Listened to some of songs today XM. Really not bad and easy listening.  According to my wife, she found that he died of Skin Cancer. I was thinking cancer myself but that confirmed it. Really too bad. I bet the bars at margaritavilles and in Keywest are crazy right now.  :salute

My all time favorite  drinking  song "Why don't we get drunk and screw" it's a little subtle but I like it!     :banana: :banana: :banana:

He died of rare Merkle Cell Carcinoma.

For me, it felt kinda like losing an old friend. He was an icon down here in Florida.
